McDonald’s introduced ‘adult Happy Meal” in early October, and they have already sold out in all locations. The appeal for the burger chain’s latest offering mainly comes from nostalgia. Some consumers who didn’t get their hands on the limited edition meal are willing to pay big bucks for it.
The meal is a collaboration between McDonald’s and streetwear brand Cactus Plant Flea Market. Customers who ordered the meal had the option of a Big Mac or 10-piece McNuggets, medium fries, a medium drink, and a random figure “toy” packaged in a unique box. Grimace, the Hamburglar, Birdie, or the new Cactus Buddy are all upgraded figurines with four eyes inspired by the Cactus brand.
MarketWatch reports that The Cactus Plant Flea Market boxes sold out the same day they came out. A medium Cactus Plant Flea Market Box costs about $12, with a large box closer to $13. The resale market draws collectors from all around the world, and this isn’t the first time a limited meal has proved popular.
The toys from the limited meal are now being resold on online sites at inflated prices. One eBay listing is asking a whopping $300,000 for three collectible Cactus Plant Flea Market, completely unwrapped and in its original packaging.
Another “authenticated” listing on the fashion marketplace Grailed offers the “Cactus Buddy!” figurine for the asking price of $39,999 (10% off the original $44,444 price tag). There are more similar listings on other websites as well including Facebook Marketplace.
Similar reactions were seen for the limited-time ‘Travis Scott meal.’ Let’s see if anyone catches a fear of missing out and drops too much money on these toys. You may check out the listings below.
